  1. Many say that Job lived in between the time of Joseph and Moses, and mention this next verse as possibly being Job. Gen 46:13 (13) And the sons of Issachar; Tola, and Phuvah, and Job, and Shimron. Now here is information that I got in researching the first bible verse to mention a resurrection, but in this comment it mentions a seemly time line to the book of Job: “…What is the First Mention of the "Resurrection" in the Bible? The English word "resurrection" means a re + standing, or standing (rising) again. The Greek is anastasis and occurs first in Matthew 22:23 for a total of 40x in the Christian Bible. The first occurrence of the word in the Jewish Greek Bible (LXX) is in the negative at Job 14:12, "and man that has lain down (in death) shall certainly not rise again." Or, "will not be resurrected." That a resurrection is possible is inferred in verse 13, 14. There are two other occurrences of forms of ANASTASIS in some versions of the LXX at Job 42:17, �And Job died, an old man and full of days: and it is written that he will rise again (ANASTESESTHAI)with those whom the Lord raises up (ANISTESIN).� This could be rendered: "that he will be resurrected with those the Lord resurrects." So, the first occurrence of "resurrect," or "resurrection" is in the Book of Job which is thought to record events from the Sixteenth Century BC between Joseph and Moses.…” (http://www.nazarene-friends.org)
  2. If you have true saving faith, it will show up in what Christ is doing in your life, and what he is producing in your life. Eph 2:8-10 (8) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: (9) Not of works, lest any man should boast. (10) For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Works can never save a person, but in claiming that Christ is in you, it will eventually produce works, but it will produce works that results in having a relationship with Christ, but just because someone has what is called good works in their lives, that in and of itself is not proof that someone is saved. So the good works that gets produce in a person must come as a result of having a true relationship with Christ, otherwise, in God's eyes it is a work of iniquity.

    The myth of Pagan roots of Christianity

    Very good video Oakwood. We can see that in many of the date claims they got it all wrong anyway. They got it wrong with the date of December 25th ( Jesus was not born on that day), but also they get it wrong with Easter, which Jesus did not die on the Easter date that has been chosen nor was he resurrected on the Easter Sunday date chosen, but rather Jesus' death and resurrection would fit more the biblical dates of Passover (some say first day of feast of unleavened bread), and Firstfruits (which of course Firstfruits pointed to Christ's resurrection, and was on the first day of the week). In fact the Easter date was a chosen date based on astrology, and not based on the bible.

    Is Judas in heaven

    At first Judas, was a follower of Christ, and later on fell. Here is a scripture: Act 1:16-17 (16) Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus. (17) For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry. Judas had obtained part of the ministry and to function in the ministry of Christ you have to be saved, but of course later he fell, and this is what Acts also says: Act 1:18-19 (18) Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. (19) And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood. Judas's end result was not good. Mat 26:24 (24) The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born. There is no doubt that Judas Iscariot went to hell, but started at the beginning, on the right track, but later completely turned away from Christ.

    The circus comes to church

    I would agree with you, but for myself in talking to Christians, and having been in a few assemblies, it was not too often I heard them preach on holiness, and even with most people that call themselves Christians, it is rare that I have heard them even mention holiness, but I do thank God for the people I am with today, which talking about holiness is the norm.

    The circus comes to church

    There are true gatherings today, but they are few and far between, and one thing that I find not too many churches focus on, is holiness, and holy living. It seems that holiness has become a rare word.

    The Erosion of Truth is Now Upon Us

    I thank God for the word of God, and with all being said, it is really true that there is a" line being drawn in the sand".

    The Erosion of Truth is Now Upon Us

    Heb 10:38 (38) Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. We are made just only by faith, and not by works; works produced through the cross (not just any works), is evidence that you are allowing Christ's salvation to work in you, which produces fruits. Every one is at a different place in their growth in Christ, but as a Christian what one must do is to continue to put their faith in Christ and what he has done. Now no Christian is perfect, and Christ is continuously changing us through the process of sanctification, but the main thing is, is that we continue to allow this process to happen, knowing that we are redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. Can one back slide and turn away from Christ? Yes they can. But we have to be very careful in our judgment. See it is not so much that we do spiritual exercises so to please God, but rather it is that we submit ourselves to God's plan of salvation, and then if we do this, then our obedience to the things of God will become genuine, and what will be produced is the fruit of the Spirit, which is love , joy etc., but it is God's kind of love , joy etc. Rom 13:10 (10) Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. Here is an interesting scripture: 2Pe 1:4-7 (4) Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. (5) And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; (6) And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; (7) And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. (8) For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. (9) But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. (10) Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: When you walk after the ways of the flesh, sin will make itself manifest, and walking after the ways of the flesh, can be trying to obey God's law without first submitting yourself to his salvation. Also the bible says this: 1Jn 1:9 (9) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. This is talking to believers, which shows that believers do sin at times, but thank God that we can confess our sins to God, and they can be brought under the blood. And concerning the 2 Peter verses, don't you get the feeling that it is showing us what to add to our faith , and that we add to our faith, virtue, and to virtue knowledge, and to temperance patience etc, in that it is showing us that allowing these things to reside in our lives, can bring us to a properly motivated way of obeying the things of God? See even though God wants obedience, he also looks at the motivation of our obedience, or what is motivating us towards obedience. See he wants us to know him in truth, for us to awake to righteousness in a state of reality, to were we become genuine, not looking for merits, but doing all to the glory of God.

    The Erosion of Truth is Now Upon Us

    Heb 3:1 (1) Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus; Even though we are made holy through Christ and his finished work, there are also holy deeds which follow proper faith in Christ. 2Pe 3:11 (11) Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 1Pe 1:15-16 (15) But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; (16) Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. I find a lot of times, what can pop up, is two extremes, of either one equating works in and of itself as holiness, which leads someone to depend on their works to be holy, or you get the other side of the coin, which some will use the word holy as a crutch, to make an excuse for their sin. It is like this, the ones who use it as a crutch, will often times say, I am holy through what Christ did at calvary, and they tend to avoid the deeds that follow a holy life that is centered in Christ; and there truly is a holy life that follows if your faith is properly put in Christ. And both these extremes actually produce self righteousness. On one hand it is self righteousness in putting their trust in their deeds, and on the other hand it is self righteousness in them putting a claim on the cross, but with no actions that follow afterwards. Let us not use the cross as a crutch, nor put our faith in our deeds.

    Our feelings show what we Really believe

    With true genuine heart faith, there is stability, but with head faith not so much.

    Not a church goer.

    Well it is not about going to church, but it is about being the church. And the bible says this: Mat 6:33 (33) But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. You should develop your relationship with God, and not seek first a church to be part of, or get caught up in this kind of "go to church" thinking, but rather focus on being what God wants you to be, and as we walk with God, God will bring people in our pathway of like minded faith (right kind of faith that is). And God can form an assembly from that, and yes he can lead you to a hall or some building as long as Christ is truly and genuinely there, but it is not about seeking a building, but seeking his face.
